I've always felt that Hollywood has it back asswards. Why remake GOOD films? Remake a turkey like "Killers from Space" or "Phantom Planet," and there's nowhere to go but up! I've already done a treatment of "Robot Monster." Couldn't cost too much to get THOSE rights, eh?

I've done a stage musical based on Ed Wood's life called "The Terrible Turkey from Outer Space." At the end he dies just as he is getting an Oscar.

Small world. I wrote a script back in the '80s about Ed Wood's glory years and eventual decline and death; it was never produced except for an artist who turned it into a graphic novel (unpublished).

I had a couple of nibbles from producers, but nothing to take to the bank. I later included it as a short story in my collection "Vishnu's Snooze Alarm." You can still get it on Amazon and Barnes and Noble on line. I changed the name to "24 Dreams a Minute"

There's one copy available on Amazon. Have you ever considered re-printing it as a Kindle book? Pretty simple to do.

In the case of Robot Monster you might have to talk to Wade Williams.
